    poziv za abstrakte

    Le Corbusier, centralna figura modernog pokreta u arhitekturi, putovao je Balkanom i istraživao njegove kuće, gradove i krajolike. Takođe, u njegovom pariškom birou radili su mnogi arhitekti balkanskih zemalja, uključujući ključne autore sa prostora bivše Jugoslavije. Ovi arhitekti, nakon formativnog stručnog iskustva u Le Corbusierovom birou, vraćali su se u Jugoslaviju i mijenjali našu izgrađenu okolinu projektima snažno inspirisanim onime što su od njega naučili. Godine 1953. Jugoslavijom je proputovala Le Corbusierova izložba koja je nadogradila pojedinačna svjedočanstva njegovih saradnika i “zaokružila” sliku o njegovom liku i djelu u jugoslovenskoj arhitektonskoj i popularnoj kulturi.

    Međutim, njegov legat u Jugoslaviji i na Balkanu, u vidu trajnog utjecaja na arhitektonsku misao, kulturu i praksu nije nikada sagledan kao cjelovita historijska manifestacija transfera znanja. Naučni skup pod nazivom “Le Corbusier u Jugoslaviji i na Balkanu – prijem modernističkih arhitektonskih postulata u perifernom regionu” čini prvi korak prema konačnoj evaluaciji Le Corbusierove uloge u modernizaciji jugoslovenske i balkanske izgrađene okoline, čije rezultate živimo i danas.

    Juraj Neidhardt, Ernest Weissmann, Edvard Ravnikar i Milorad Pantović samo su neki od jugoslovenskih arhitekata čije je životno djelo duboko obilježeno njihovim profesionalnim susretom sa Le Corbusierom.

    Eksperimentiranje s Le Corbusierovim osnovnim arhitektonskim i urbanističkim tipovima u Jugoslaviji i na Balkanu bilo je ograničeno društvenim i materijalnim prilikama, dok su istovremeno služili kao osnovna sredstva modernizacije društva i urbanizacije zemlje. Upregnuti u poslijeratnu obnovu i masovnu izgradnju arhitekti u Le Corbusieru istovremeno vide i uzor i spasitelja. Putujuća izložba njegovog arhitektonskog, urbanističkog i likovnog stvaralaštva, održana 1952. i 1953. godine u Beogradu, Ljubljani, Sarajevu, Skopju, Zagrebu, Splitu i Mostaru trebala je reafirmirati arhitekturu kao glavnu likovnu disciplinu. Indirektno, međutim, izložba Le Corbusiera je imala i važan homogenizacijski učinak na nacionalnu produkciju koja je u svakoj od republika imala svoju vlastitu, a opet sličnu genezu.

    Sedamdeseta godišnjica izložbe (organizirane od strane Saveza arhitekata Jugoslavije), kao i stota godišnjica Le Corbusierovog kapitalnog djela „Vers une Architecture“ (objavljenog 1923.) stvaraju izuzetan povod za kompleksan uvid u transfer znanja između Corbusiera i jugoslovenske i balkanske arhitekture.

    Sa ovim ciljem, tematska konferencija “Le Corbusier u Jugoslaviji i na Balkanu ,” u organizaciji Docomomo BiH / Asocijacija arhitekata u BiH, Muzeja za arhitekturo in oblikovanje (MAO) Ljubljana, Institita za povijest umjetnosti (IPU) Zagreb i Docomomo Srbija / Društvo arhitekata Beograda poziva istoričare arhitekture i istoričare umjetnosti da istraže transfere, medijacije, rezultate i posljedice učenja i prakse Le Corbusiera u Jugoslaviji i na Balkanu.

    Radovi predloženi za konferenciju mogu, između ostalog, razmatrati slijedeća pitanja:

    -Koji su koncepti i/ili tehnike Le Corbusierove doktrine moderne arhitekture i urbanizma imali najznačajnije djelovanje i utjecaj na arhitektonsku i urbanističku teoriju, praksu i kulturu u Jugoslaviji i na Balkanu

    -Koji su bili kanali, žanrovi i mediji aktivni u diseminaciji Le Corbusierove misli (arhitektonski časopisi, prevodi knjiga, televizijske emisije, popularna štampa) i koji je bio njihov utjecaj na sadržinu transfera znanja?

    -Kakva je bila institucionalna i popularna recepcija ovih ideja, uključujući politike prostornog razvoja, politike upravljanja naslijeđem i odnos prema životnoj sredini?

    -Koji su ključni projekti lokalnih autora u Jugoslaviji i na Balkanu konkretizirali Le Corbusierove principe i omogućili njihovu daljnju      popularizaciju i diseminaciju?

    -Koje su bile lokalne varijacije ii odgovori na provokaciju Le Corbusierovog diskursa, kao mogući elementi povratnog transfera znanja?

    Call for Abstracts

    Le Corbusier, the central figure of the Modern Movement in architecture, traveled across the Balkans and researched its houses, cities and landscapes. In turn, many architects from the Balkan states, including key authors from former Socialist Yugoslavia, worked in Le Corbusier’s atelier in Paris. After this formative working experience, they returned to Yugoslavia or other countries of origin, and transformed their built environments through projects, strongly inspired by what they learned in the course of their collaborations with Le Corbusier.

    In 1953, the exhibition of Corbusier’s work that traveled across Yugoslavia elaborated on the singular testimonies of his collaborators and “rounded off” the picture about his personality and his work in Yugoslav architecture and popular culture.

    However, his legacy in the Balkans, in the form of permanent influence on architectural thought, culture and practice, has never been studied as an integral historical manifestation of knowledge transfer. The thematic conference, titled “Le Corbusier in Yugoslavia and the Balkans – reception and interpretation of modernist architectural postulates in the peripheral region” is performing the first step towards the evaluation of Le Corbusier’s role in the modernization of Yugoslav and Balkan built environment, the results of which we still live today.

    Juraj Neidhardt, Ernest Weissmann, Edvard Ravnikar and Milorad Pantović are just some of those Yugoslav architect’s whose life’s work was profoundly marked by their professional encounter with Le Corbusier. Experimentation with Le Corbusier’s basic architectural and urbanistic types in Yugoslavia and the Balkans was limited by social and material circumstances, while at the same time they served as basic tools of social modernization and urbanization. Harnessed in post-war reconstruction and mass construction, architects saw Le Corbusier as both a role model and saviour. The 1953 traveling exhibition of his architectural, urbanistic and artistic work, which has been put on display in Belgrade, Ljubljana, Sarajevo, Skopje and Zagreb, as well as Split and Mostar, was supposed to reinstate architecture as the principal visual art. Indirectly, the exhibition had an important homogenizing effect on national production, which in each of the former Yugoslav republics had its own specific, although similar, course.

    The 70th anniversary of this exhibition (organized by the Union of Architects of Yugoslavia), as well as a 100th anniversary of Le Corbusier’s capital work „Vers une Architecture“ (published in 1923), create an exceptional occasion for a complex insight into the knowledge transfer between Le Corbusier and Yugoslav and Balkan architecture.

    With this goal, the thematic conference “Le Corbusier in Yugoslavia and the Balkans,” organized by Docomomo Bosnia and Herzegovina and Association of Architects in B&H, with the support of Museum of Architecture and Design – MAO (Ljubljana), Institute for Art History (Zagreb) and Docomomo Serbia and Association of Architects of Belgrade (Belgrade), invites architecture and art historians to investigate the transfers, mediations, results and consequences of Le Corbusier’s teaching and practice in Yugoslavia and the Balkans.

    Proposals submitted to the conference may choose to address the following questions:

    -Which particular concepts and/or techniques of Le Corbusier’s doctrine of modern architecture and urbanism had the most agency and impact on architecture theory, practice and culture in Yugoslavia and the Balkans?

    -What were the channels, genres and media active in the dissemination of Le Corbusier’s thoughts (journals, translated books, television, popular press) and what was the impact of these media on the contents of the knowledge transfer?

    -What was the popular and institutional reception of these ideas, including politics and policies of spatial development, heritage protection and their relationship to the environment?

    -Which particular projects by local authors in Yugoslavia and the Balkans concretized Le Corbusier’s principles and provided for their further dissemination and popularization?

    -What were local variations and answers to the provocation of Le Corbusier’s discourse, as possible elements of the reversed knowledge transfer?

    Submit proposals (300 words), and bio (200 words) to the email docomomo.bh@aabh.ba.

    Deadline EXTENDED: July 5 2023. 

    The scientific committee of the conference will go through, select and organize proposals around themed sessions.

    Notifications on participation will be sent by July 10, 2023.

    The participation in the conference is free, with no registration fees.

    Selected papers will be invited to prepare a submission for an edited, peer-reviewed volume.
